• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I've be assured that they will be getting their test radios in the next month and a half. Has anyone else been waiting for the county, animal control and highway department to join in on the digital? Just like the state police I bet when the switch happens there will be several busts happing within the first month.

Thats why McHenry County is green today. Like Bullvalley Hebron probably all the ones who have a direct link to the 155.79000 now I would think. Anyone else have any input on what I think?

I heard that by the end of this month the system should be up and running but I do not know when they will officially go over.
